Barnie's Santa's White Christmas

While I'm not much of a fan of flavored coffee, I do LOVE Santa's White Christmas. Barnie's has it available year-round, but to me it's a post-Thanksgiving through Christmas treat. They describe it as "flavored with coconut, nuts, sweet caramel, and vanilla." This is a good description, except I'm not sure what nuts nowhere near the assault that hazelnut coffee usually has. Some other holiday blends go the spice route, but this leans toward the sweetness of holiday indulgences. Since there is a slightly added sweetness, little or no sugar is needed. I'm not sure what the white dusting on the beans is, but it's a little sweet tasting, yes I licked one. My thought was some type of coconut, but that's probably incorrect.

Like other Barnie's coffee, Santa's White Christmas comes in a foil lined bag. Nothing notable about the packaging.

Yes, I highly recommend Santa's White Christmas! For me it's an absolute holiday must. I've been drinking Trader Joe's recently, it's closer than Barnie's, but definitely take the extra time to pick up some SWC!

Bottom Line Rating:4.5/5


  1. Thanks for this! I just opened up my very first bag and saw the white beans & was confused. Glad to know it's normal! Figured it was fine, it tastes great! I see this was 2013 and now almost 2021. It's fine, I'm fine, no big deal. Lol
